View an exhibit that brings together a national community of over 500 people in 20 cities to illustrate the past, present and future of mass incarceration. Teams of students designed the exhibition pieces that explore a history of incarceration in their own communities. These include Angola’s slave plantation-turned-prison in Louisiana, the legacies of the Dakota Wars for Native American incarceration in Minnesota, and immigration detention at Ellis Island and Elizabeth, New Jersey. Together, they created a diverse genealogy of the incarceration generation, challenging viewers to remember the past and use the insights of history to shape what happens next. This is presented in partnership with IUPUI Humanities Action Lab and The Medical History Museum. This exhibit can be viewed during regular Library hours in the Atrium.
